Love the sweetness of the sweet potatoes against the spices. These are done within half an hour.

2 sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 tsp cumin seeds
handful curry leaves
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
pinch of turmeric
pinch of amchur (Mango Powder)
salt to taste
coriander leaves for garnish


  1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a non stick pan.
  2. Add the cumin seeds, once they start to splutter add the curry leaves and all the dry masalas.
  3. Add the potatoes. Mix well.
  4. Cover and cook on low till the potatoes are tender and well cooked. (About 15 minutes) ( cooking time varies, depending on the size of the potatoes)
  5. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

I don't know why I've never cooked a lot with sweet potatoes.
Spicing it up like that to offset the sweetness is a good idea.
